was honored to work with that group, along with senator pryor and senator schumer, with senator barrasso, senator alexander and our former colleague, senator kyl, and we sat for hours debating. it was very educational for me, mr. president, because i would listen to the concerns of my republican colleagues, and it was a lot different than what i heard in the democratic caucus, and i think we both learned a lot from each other but there was general agreement that there was a real problem in the operations of the united states senate, and that we owed an obligation to take a look at our rules and see whether we couldn't modify the rules so that we can do the type of deliberation, debate and voting that's expected of the united states senate. one of the problems that became very apparent to all of us is that individual senators are able to block the consideration of amendments and bills on the floor of the senate indefinitely, and that's wrong. my colleague from arizona pointed out that you could be in your home state and offer an objection, a bill could be brought to a standstill. that's n

here in the senate. senator schumer, senator gillibrand, senator menendez, senator lautenberg; of course in maryland, you don't hear much about maryland, but one or two small counties were terribly affected in maryland. and senator cardin, senator mikulski have been just day in and day out working with me and with many, of course, trying to fashion a robust and smart response to the disaster on the east coast. we want it to be smart, mr. president, because the taxpayers don't want to waste money on things that don't work. and, of course, the survivors want it to be smart because they really need us to do our best work now. we can't be late and sloppy and bureaucratic. they've got churches to be built and faith-based organizations to get back up and running. their schools, libraries, most importantly their homes and their businesses. so this is a very important work and it's been difficult, because there are many different philosophies about how to tackle this. and i'm made my positions fairly clear on certain things like offsets, et cetera, et cetera. but today i really wanted
: that will be on c-span 3 today at 11:00 eastern time. rip mccarthy, representative schumer, the police chief in philadelphia. we want you to phone in to this segment. we are going to get into the politics of gun control. let people know that we have a fourth line for this particular segment for gun owners. we found the story in "thew new york times." as we get into the politics and what might be doable, the headline says -- would you think is going to be doable here on the hill? guest: he says he represents a state that has many gun owners themselves. when you actually talk to gun owners and nra members, they support by large majorities sensible and strengthening the current gun laws. what they support, 82% of gun owners, 72% of members actually support universal background checks. we are trying to keep guns and weapons out of the hands of dangerous people, criminals, and the seriously mentally ill. when you talk to people in west virginia, gun owners themselves want to be able to have guns in their homes. they also want to ensure that those guns do not fall into the hands of people who shou
i've been honored to join chuck schumer of new york and bob menendez of new jersey. on the republican side, john mccain of arizona, lindsey graham of south carolina, marco rubio of florida. pretty interesting group; right? pretty interesting political spectrum represented by these six senators. for the last few months we've been sitting down and working out a statement of principles about immigration reform. and today we unveiled those principles. we have a lot of work to do. we still have to write the law and we still have to bring it to the senate to be debated and to be passed. i don't assume for a minute that we're going to have every senator supporting it on both sides of the aisle. that would be too much to consider or to ask. but i know from listening to the speeches that were given by senator sessions of alabama, senator vitter of louisiana, they have many questions that they want to ask about how we approach immigration reform. so let me try, if i can, to speak to some of the basics that are included in our effort. first, when i listened to the senator from
and we learn from each other. this is an example of chuck schumer this last week that i'm really been overheard on which is we have veterans to come home from iraq and afghanistan and the fever had closed head trauma or lost the ability for a short program of time to maybe manage their affairs we have through executive orders in the past not with this president and the republican president taken away their ability to own a gun just a gun to go with their grandson and know where have they been educated by the court to the degree they should lose their second amendment rights we have a social worker or a psychologist to that. so working through that we had tough stuff on the floor i think we ought to figure out a way to do this on people who are not dangerous to themselves or anybody else and we had a way to rule chuck schumer last week in the second degree amendment that i actually listened to him and said what are your concerns? so i chose not to. i have a procedural way where i was going to win my amendment but i listened to him so that is really what isn't going on much we have to w
. just three of the many reasons why senator chuck schumer from new york says we owe it to the country to at least try. hear from one local victim coming up at 6:00. mike, angry yea back to you. >> thanks delia. delia goncalves live this morning. >>> d.c. police -- homicide investigators are at the scene of a serious early morning shooting. this is in northwest. this is a live look right now at fifth and nicholson streets where a woman was shot in the head according to police. they got the call just before 3:30 this morning. officers found the woman unconscious and not breathing and they have not moved the victim since our crew arrived there more than an hour ago. so far no information about possible suspects or a motive but obviously the investigation is still underway. >>> metro leaders are proposing new tunnels to help the system keep up with growing demand. in a plan presented to the agency's board of directors, metro managers expressed a hope for new tunnels in downtown washington in order to separate lines that currently share tunnels. they also want to build express tracks along
. the house seems to have made something move. you hear chuck schumer on the sunday show saying oh, yeah, we're going to do a budget. all of a should the glacial activity in the senate is sliding, it's moving. >> what the house republicans managed to do is sort of shame the senate democrats into action, and it was funny watching chuck schumer talk about it. he almost talked like, oh, they were manning on doing this anyway, which to me suggests that at least finally they were somewhat embarrassed about the fact that as you say they have not passed a pwupbl net fou budget in four years. i can't think of anything that is more basic or fundamental that the whole congress must do every single year if you want fiscal sanity. jon: they are legally required to do so under the constitution. >> that's just a technicality, come on, jon. jon: in you don't have a budget if you spend way beyond it nobody notices it because there is no benchmark, right? >> it's absolute insanity. no household would operate like that. if a company were to do this it would go out of business immediately. such is the situatio
of the lip-syncing criticism, she was shown in the sweatshirt, saying can i live? can i live? charles schumer, by the way, apparently is waiting for a call from beyonce. he wants her to apologize. he ran the inaugural committee. i think he will be waiting for quite some time. >> senator, you stick by that >> good luck with that. >> yeah. >>> "pop news." >> let's do it. good morning to you all. we begin with jennifer lawrence. the superstar showing off a lot of leg, as she made her way to the stage to accept her prize for best female actor in "silver linings playbook." we have more of that coming up in fashion. take a look at this. some footage that jennifer lawrence made. she thanked mtv. it was a promo for "my super sweet 16." it showed her at 14 years old. jennifer said, when she got the card in the mail, it made her life because it made her a professional actor. as we know, the rest is history. congratulations, to jennifer lawrence. >>> and tina fey could be adding to her resume. the comedienne, writer, actress, and now broadway producer? before tina fey scooped the s.a.g. for best actress
are joining the democrats chuck schumer and bennett to introduce a set of principles they want to guide immigration legislation as it moves through congress. here's what the four basics of this proposal look like. first create a tough but fair path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already here. contingent on meeting border security metrics. changes the system in a way that helps our economy. set up a verification program and overhaul the system for letting future workers into the united states. the goal is to have legislation drafted by the end of march. >>> the president's going to travel to vegas tomorrow and that is where he will speak publicly on his plans to move immigration reform and make that an immediate priority. of course, he's also moving on gun violence at the same time. so he's going to have to work at those paths simultaneously. we can attribute the new republican willingness to go along with republican reform to the republicans losing seven out of ten hispanic votes in november. mccain and company have some selling to do. they need to convince their colleagues their
without pay. i'm not sure this is a threat the american people would mind so much. senator chuck schumer has said the senate is working on a budget but the republicans won't like it because it includes tax increases. they will talk about a short term solution. it is a change from before. beyond that, it remains to be seen what common ground, if any we can find between the two sides. house speaker boehner wants to balance the budge net ten years but doing that would take massive spending cuts that democrats won't go for. we're back after the break. coming on to me all the time now. (vo) she gets the comedians laughing and the thinkers thinking. >>ok, so there's wiggle room in the ten commandments, that's what you're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney.

on this debt ceiling vote and chuck schumer said we are going to present a budget. that's not such a big deal except where they never present a budget. they don't want to come up with any of the hard choices. every time the democrats do something as obama did on medicare, it's death panels. you have to somehow join hands in order to be able to do this. all the cuts that obama made to medicare, he got blasted for by republicans. >> right. >> good point. >> he got blasted for them by romney. not all the republicans. >> he did decide to use that money to start an entitlement program. it would have been nice to move that money to the side. we will see what happens. you are right. everyone will have to join hands and make the tough choices. the bigger the deal the better the chance to get involved. >> "time" magazine's joe kline and willie geist is live. he's on the parade route. willie geist what do you have coming up next? >> mika, you guys are inside a warm bar. i'm outside in the cold. i'm doing something wrong here clearly. we will update you on what will happen out here tod
the senate hasn't passed in four year. chuck schumer yesterday on "meet the press" made the announcements that of course democrats would pass a budget this year. if you believe the pressure is not getting to him, then you're not watching. i think the pressure is getting to him. for chuck shumer to say on national tv they're going to pass a budget anyway tells you that the strategy might be working. however, your question is very valid. because i have those same concerns. they have caved every single time, in the last two years, and i have made it very explicit to them that i am with them on this issue because i believe their statements that they're not going to cave again but if they cave again, they're going to have -- they're going to have some problems in the house. they're going to have -- because there's a large number of members of the house, republican house members, who are very dissatisfied with what's happening. and they're believing that the leadership is changing, their gentleman ji, they're changing their negotiation tactics. i'm just optimistic. like i said before. but i thi
, these senators, these include some of the biggest players on the democratic side. senator schumer, senator durbin, on the republican side, senator mccain, marco rubio, coming out with a plain before the president unveils his. tomorrow the president is going to jet to las vegas to unveil his immigration plan. these senators putting out a marker. here are the three big points of this plan. and this is going to be the biggest debate on immigration in six years since back in 2007 when president bush's plan was deeted. he defeated. here are the three big paths. it will provide a path to legal citizenship for the people in the country illegally. that's dependent on increasing border security before that happened and some other procedural safeguards. and three, there's going to be a little faster path to citizenship for seasonal agricultural workers and for young people who are brought to the country illegally. so that's the nod to the dream act that's so popular on the left. >> andrea, what chances do a major plan like this have of getting through congress? >> i think better than ever. and the real sad
